Wes G. Schroeder, ’64 DVM, Minnetonka, Minn., died January 27 at age 82. Schroeder grew up on a farm near Bemidji, Minn. and was one of six children. He was the first in his family to attend college. He was active in the Beltrami County 4-H Club. Upon graduating from Bemidji High School in 1954, Schroeder joined the U.S. Army, serving as a medic in the 82nd Airborne Division.

Current diagnostic tests for Chronic Wasting Disease (CWD), which is a growing threat to Minnesota’s white-tailed deer population, can only confirm CWD’s advance after an infected animal is dead. And the tests require days or weeks to deliver results. Thus, wildlife managers can only learn where CWD has been, not where it is currently circulating, which makes controlling the contagious, neurodegenerative disease challenging.
